What’s new at Phoenix?

Hey all, I’m back from Spring Break and am a bit more tan, slightly rested (but quickly losing ground on that front from long nights since returning) and am more than ready to get things rolling once again at Phoenix Productions! I thought it wise to share a little of what I’ve been up toContinue reading “What’s new at Phoenix?”


That’s right, kids! More PATRIOT! Seriously, some pre-release feedback suggested that this book was a little unique for today’s marketplace and, as a result, was a tad confusing for some readers. I thought it best to use the time immediately following the completion of the original HEROES NOW: PATRIOT book to jot down my thoughtsContinue reading “HEROES NOW: PATRIOT – COMMENTARY EDITION on sale NOW”

Larry’sContinue reading “Small press legend Larry Johnson reviews Heroic: Heroes Past”

Heroic: Heroes Past review

Heroic: Heroes Past was circulated to members of the United Fanzine Organization co-op as part of my obligation as a member to share my books and review/comment on those sent to me. A few of the members were kind enough to offer their thoughts on the book in Tetragrammaton Fragments, the UFO’s bimonthly newsletter. VerlContinue reading “Heroic: Heroes Past review”

The United Fanzine Organization is a co-op where members send copies of books and review/critique/support each other in our self-publishing journeys.
